Medical Doctor Richard O’Connor Says He Has Proof UFOs Are Real — UFO Captured On Camera Over Montana [Photos]

Richard O’Connor, an anesthesiologist, believes he may have obtained proof of UFOs after his cameras snapped photos of two mysterious objects flying in the sky over his home in Clancy, Montana, on November 4, 2015, according to a report by the Great Falls Tribune.

O’Connor had installed two cameras pointed at the sky about 30 feet off the ground. And after about two years, the cameras captured objects in the sky that O’Connor believes are UFOs.

According to O’Connor, the photos appear to show a “light source. In my opinion, even a hardened skeptic would say ‘Wow, that is what I expect a UFO would look like.'”

O’Connor’s UFO pictures have sparked a furious debate in the online UFO community. In an effort to solve the mystery, O’Connor has sent the images to photo analysts so they can give their opinion about what his cameras captured in the skies over his home in Clancy, Montana.

O’Connor worked as an anesthesiologist at St. Peter’s Hospital in Helena before he retired. He explains that his fascination with UFOs sprang from 25 years of friendship with a medical colleague Jesse Marcel Jr., also a Helena doctor.

Marcel Jr. is known in the UFO community for his testimony about his July 1947 Roswell, New Mexico, UFO experience.

Marcel’s father, Major Jesse Marcel (see video below), was sent by his military superiors to investigate the famous UFO crash at a ranch near the Roswell Army Air Field. Major Marcel reportedly took some of the wreckage home to show his son.

Dr. Jesse Marcel Jr. was a 10-year-old boy in 1947 when his father brought the wreckage from the Roswell UFO crash home and allowed him to see and touch it.

Father and son puzzled over the wreckage while the U.S. Army Air Corps issued a press release saying that military personnel had found a “flying saucer” at a crash site in Roswell. But the military authorities later retracted the statement, saying it was only a weather balloon.

According to Marcel Jr., people who were at the crash site, including his father Marcel Sr., saw the “flying saucer.” But under pressure from military authorities, they agreed not to talk about it.

But Marcel and his father were unable to remain silent indefinitely. By the 1970s, they were talking about what they saw out of the conviction that the government was covering up information that people had the right to know about.

O’Connor new Marcel Jr. for about 25 years and believed he was truthful about his claims that he and his father saw and touched the Roswell “flying saucer.”

Before Marcel Jr. died at the age of 76, O’Connor, now 60, set up the Jesse A. Marcel Jr. Library on his property in Montana and Marcel Jr. attended the dedication.

According to Great Falls Tribune, O’Connor told Marcel Jr., “Your story is important, and to continue to educate the public we should open a library.”

O’Connor also installed two Reconyx Hyperfire PC 900 Trail cameras pointed in the sky outside his home.

The cameras, placed about 30 feet off the ground, were programmed to snap a photo of any moving object that comes within range. They are able to shoot 20 photos at one-second intervals.

O’Connor also posted a message about the purpose of the camera online. The message specified the longitude and latitude of the cameras and invited visiting aliens to come to the camera and have their pictures taken.

Over the years, the cameras snapped about 280,000 photos, including birds, squirrels, and trees swaying in the wind. But on November 4, the cameras captured images that O’Connor believes show UFOs in the sky.

O’Connor described the UFO (see below) as “a very symmetrical [object], smooth and reflective surface that appears to have his own light source.”

He reported the sighting to the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC), an organization founded in 1974 by Robert Gribble that investigates reports of UFO and alien sightings.

Responding to skeptics who suggested that he may have altered the photos digitally, O’Connor said he has no knowledge or experience of digital photo manipulation.

The first analyst report said that “the images are real, but remain a mystery. I suspect the lights in the first and last photos are sun reflections off of something rather any propulsion system.”

The analyst concluded that this “is a puzzle to solve rather than a fake.”

But another analyst declared it “100 percent fake.”

O’Connor was angered by the report and expressed displeasure in a letter to Peter Davenport, head of NUFORC. He offered to take a lie detector test.

Davenport suggested that O’Connor seek an analyst he believes he can trust.

A more recent report by a photo analyst acknowledged the photo was authentic and said analysis suggested it was not a balloon or a “man-made object.” The analysis also reportedly showed that the object decelerated and then accelerated, but held its position in one frame.

“The colors of the object resemble the surrounding blue sky and clouds. This would naturally occur with highly reflective silver objects. The fact that it was 1/20 second frame rules out balloons or other man-made objects. It also indicates the objects decelerated and accelerated and held position for just one frame, as there’s no elongated motion line that would have occurred if the velocity was constant.

“I’m sure some will say it is one frame of hot pixels; which is impossible for just one frame and a wide selected zone of linear pixels. Some will say it’s a digital recording artifact; this is not possible because the pixels comprising… the objects are linear with gradient fall off.”

O’Connor, who plans to seek the opinion of several other analysts, said the photo was not manipulated and that it was “what came off the camera.”

He insists the photo is proof that UFOs are real and that there is an urgent need for in-depth and unbiased scientific research to determine whether Earth is being visited or monitored by alien races. But he admitted that widespread skepticism about UFOs is understandable. However, he expressed fear that skepticism would allow the authorities to cover-up the truth.

“They [skeptics] did not have the opportunity in their lives to know Dr. Marcel. I am interested in the truth. If I am subject to criticism to get to the bottom of this, then I guess it is part of the deal.”
